    An inspirational movie of resilience and living with less

I had the pleasure of watching Alone in the Wilderness this weekend and thought it would be a good addition to the DailyPrep section.  I think the words "Awesome" and "Wonderful" were used many times amongst the family while watching.  Here is a short clip from youtube to bring a smile to you face.

Get Alone in the Wilderness on Amazon. Learn more about Dick Proenneke here.

    I'll be darned, we lived down the Chandalar River from him during the cabin building. We never made it to his place but I can tell you, it's beautiful and cold. Chandalar Lake (12 miles long by 2 miles wide) froze over in one night, noisiest night I ever spent. For two days you could ice skate for miles on crystal clear ice. Kinda spooky to watch big Lake Trout swim under your feet.

    Wonderful movie! He was a real craftsman, building the cabin by hand. My brother and I still watch the movie.

    definite fav

    I have Alone in the Wilderness part 1 and 2 as locked recordings on my PVR. They act as a blanket of comfort that I can tune into when things get too hairy in the real world. Watching them always brings peace to my soul.
